BOONE CO., KY (FOX19) - A woman is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Boone County early Sunday morning.
Officials say Deputy Tyler Brockman had stopped in the 6000 block of River Road to investigate a field party.
It was reported that Brockman was outside of his cruiser when he ordered a driver of a car who was leaving the party to stop.
The driver, 19-year-old Samantha Ramsey, refused to stop and hit Brockman, causing him to land on the hood of the car.

Ramsey was transported to Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Florence, Ky. where she was pronounced dead.
Brockman was transported to Saint Elizabeth in Edgewood, Ky. where he was treated for a leg injury and released.
Boone County Sheriff Michael A. Helmig has ordered a full investigation on this incident and placed Brockman on administrative leave.
